Description:Sexual morph: Undetermined. Asexual morph: Conidiophores simple or complex. Simple conidiophores short and sparsely branched, (30–)62.7(–86.3) µm long terminating in a whorl of phialides. Phialides monophialidic, cylindrical, tapering toward the aperature, (12.2–)19.2(–29.1) µm long, (1.7–)2.3(–2.7) µm wide at the base, and (1.3–)1.5(–1.6) µm wide at the apex. Macroconidia on SNA produced predominately in sporodochial pulvinate domes of slimy masses, (1–)3-septate, generally cylindrical, smooth-walled, some slightly curved, slightly wider at the base, with rounded end cells; one-septate conidia (17.6–)19.9(–22.6) × (2.6–)3.4(–4.4) µm; two-septate conidia (17.9–)21.5(–23.6) × (2.6–)3.4(–4.1) µm; three-septate conidia (20.8–)23.4(–27.3) × (2.9–)3.7(–4.3) µm.
